    Connect to a Firefox Plugin or Toolbar from a mySQL database

    I was wondering how tricky it would be to connect to a firefox plugin or toolbar from a mySQL database. Anyone had any experience with this?

    What do you mean by connect to a plugin? Do you mean that you want a plugin to connect to a database? In that case, do you mean on the same machine as the browser is running, or at a remote location?

    Sure if it uses AJAX and or RPC to talk to a server-side language like PHP.
    Logic without the fatal effects.

    You would normally use a server side language, such as PHP, to create a service, which the firefox extension can connect to over HTTP.
